According to the adviser to the head of the Office of the President Mykhailo Podoliak, a person can live the way he wants, in peacetime, but not in wartime.
Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the President’s Office, believes that today the issue of a man leaving Ukraine for other countries is not on the agenda. He stated this in an interview with DW, published on February 23.
“Let’s still talk more harshly among ourselves. No need for speculation. What does the restriction of rights mean? In addition to the rights of people in Ukraine, is there any debt or not? Or are we just talking about rights?” – he answered the question of a journalist about the issue of lifting restrictions on travel outside Ukraine for male citizens.
According to Podolyak, some citizens of Ukraine believe that the state is obliged to provide them with “something”, to allow them to leave and give them the opportunity to live the way they want. At the same time, he believes that during martial law the situation is completely different.
“Yes, we will give everything in peacetime. But during the war, the question is not raised like that,” the politician emphasized.
As the representative of the OP noted, those Ukrainians who promote the issue of opening borders for men simply “want to escape from making a specifically male decision for themselves.”
At the same time, he hinted that such behavior would lead to the destruction of Ukraine.
“Do you want to cross the border? That is, you want to say that Ukraine should cease to exist because you crossed the border,” Podolyak responded.
Recall that on February 27, Podolyak responded to the threats of Deputy Head of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev to use nuclear weapons if the West continues to supply weapons to Ukraine. According to him, Russia is asking the world to give it the right to kill citizens of another country with impunity.
On February 16, the press service of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine said that four Ukrainians tried to escape from the country to Romania on an air mattress across the river.
